Polis Calls on Congress to End Marijuana Prohibition

Speaking alongside industry advocates, U.S. Rep. Jared Polis (D-CO) called Wednesday for Congress to end the prohibition on marijuana, stressing the need to reduce drug violence while hailing the medical cannabis market's capacity for growing the economy. "Ending the failed policy of prohibition with regard to marijuana will strike a major blow against the criminal cartels that are terrorizing Americans and Mexicans on both sides of the border," Polis said at the National Press Club, in response to a question from Raw Story. "It's been estimated that the drug cartels drive about half of ...

Jared Polis has ideas for closing federal budget gap

Although the so-called Gang of Six's proposalfor averting debt-ceiling catastrophe is getting the lion's share of attention right now, Representative Jared Polis has floated some revenue-raising ideas of his own, which the media has largely winnowed down to this: Legalizing marijuana would help close the budget gap. But if that shortchanges some of his other notions, Polis's spokesman isn't complaining. "You can't really blame the media for focusing on a controversial issue when you raise a controversial issue," says Polis communications director Chris Fitzgerald. "If it brings attention to ...

Polis statement on racial incident at the Air Force Academy Prep School
Rep. Jared Polis, D-Colo., gave the following statement about racial slurs that targeted five cadets at the U.S. Air Force Academy Prep School.  “As a member of the Air Force Academy Board of Visitors, I am particularly troubled and disgusted by the act of hate committed at the Air Force Academy Prep School. It is far beneath the dignity of the Air Force Academy, and I expect they will complete a full and thorough investigation and issue the appropriate punishment. We must remain committed to ensuring that the military is inclusive.  Anyone who is willing to serve our great country should be shown the utmost respect, and no one should ever be subjected to such hatefulness and bigotry,” said Polis.  ### 
Polis found to be most effective U.S. Representative in Colorado in 114th Congress
Washington: A nonpartisan think-tank found Rep. Jared Polis, D-Colo., the most effective U.S. Representative in Colorado in the 114th Congress.  The Center for Effective Lawmaking ranked Polis 47 out of 193 Democrats last congress in his effectiveness, exceeding projected expectations.  "At a time when we must defend progress and keep pushing forward, I am proud to be named the most effective U.S. Representative in Colorado by the nonpartisan Center for Effective Lawmaking.  I credit my effectiveness largely to the engagement of my constituents day-in and day-out.  The people of my district drive me to fight like heck in Washington, D.C., and deliver results on issues that matter to Coloradans,” said Polis.  Last Congress, Polis sponsored or co-sponsored 52 bills that passed the House of Representatives.  He was also instrumental in crafting the Every Student Succeeds Act, a bipartisan update to our outdated K-12 education law, which will provide new
Polis introduces a nationwide plan to bolster access to affordable preschool and child care
Rep. Jared Polis, D-Colo., introduced the Child Care for Working Families Act today, a nationwide plan to ensure that all families have access to affordable, quality preschool and child care.  “Education, from early childhood through college, is the single best investment we can make in our future. Sadly, many parents are priced-out of high-quality preschool and child care,” said Polis. “No child should be denied a good start just because of their family's economic circumstances, and no parent should have to be faced with the burden of not being able to afford the very best for their kids. The Child Care for Working Families Act will finally give families access to high-quality child care and preschool.” The Child Care for Working Families Act would create a federal-state partnership to ensure families making less than 150 percent of their state’s median income do not pay more than seven percent of their income on child care. The bill also supp
Polis’s plan to make textbooks more affordable gets praise from faculty and students, alike
Washington:  Rep. Jared Polis, D-Colo., introduced the Affordable College Textbook Act today, as part of his plan to make college more affordable.  The bill expands access to free, high-quality textbooks, earning praise from faculty and students at Front Range Community College. According to College Board, the average student budget for college books and supplies during the 2016-17 academic year was $1,250.  According to a survey by U.S. PIRG, 65 percent of students decided not to buy a textbook because of the cost, and 94 percent of those students worried it would negatively affect their grade. "To reduce the skyrocketing cost of college, we have to think about everything from tuition to textbooks.  Textbook costs on top of tuition truly add up and can mean the difference between going to college or being priced out.  My bill removes barriers to free, online textbooks, helping students save money, while getting the best, most up-to-date content.  It’
